'50 Shades Of Grey' Wasn't Bad Enough, So They Added A Kardashian

Kendall Jenner from Hawaii 5-0

In case the '50 Shades Of Grey' movie wasn't a hot enough mess, they added Kendall Jenner.

Even though it hasn't been released yet, the sequel to next year's biggest accidental comedy is already starting to cast.

Kendall Jenner is rumored to be up for a part in the 50 Shades of Grey sequel, because she's clearly a beacon of cinematic charisma and talent, just like her 42 sisters.

(I'd also like to note that I hope that they don't use the book's name and instead come up with their own title for the 50 Shades Of Grey movie sequel, like 50 Shades Of GreyS or 51 Shades Of Grey or something else stupid like that. Because 50 Shades Darker is already a really dumb name, because if it's darker than gray, then it's just black. The sequel should just be called Black.)

Kendall Jenner's casting definitely says something about how confident the studio is about this franchise. No studio takes a movie that they think will succeed and adds a minor reality TV star. No studio has ever said "You know what will secure our artistic investment? One of the Kardashians!" (And no, Tyler Perry doesn't count as "artistic," because most of his non-Madea movies revolve around slut-shaming nonsense anyway.)

This move basically says "Hey, what will trick people into seeing the sequel to this movie that we worried is going to flop? Oh, I know! Stunt casting!" So, good for Kendall! She's not a real movie star!

Kendall Jenner (who wants to just go by "Kendall" so she can be taken more seriously outside the very family whose nepotism and fame-whoring got her where she is) potentially being up a role would be a big deal. But it's not for most of us who remember basic history. Why? Because she's a Kardashian, so she'll probably just end up doing a real porn anyway.

Though let's be real: Having the Kardashians on the same set as their Rob-dumping nemesis Rita Ora should make for some drama that's better than Christian Grey or anything mommy porn author EL James could ever conceive.
